Thank you for using JustAnswer.

You have no obligation to do so. You may if you choose, but are not required to. The ACA (Affordable Care Act) mandates that insurance companies have plans that allow insured to keep children on until age 26, but does not require the parent to cover the child. If the child is emancipated, then there's no continuing obligation of support. Any support is voluntary at this point.

Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.

Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!
